    Notes 
    • From Vernon Briggs’ History and Genealogy of the Briggs Family:
      George’s father died in 1837, when George was 22 years of age, leaving a partly completed vessel on the stocks. With the help of his brother-in-law, Capt. Elijah Barstow, who was then building at the Barstow shipyard, George completed and launched her. He moved to Medford about 1840, where he worked for several years as ship joiner.
